There was a brief discussion of the CG Stunt Man 23 in the Redneck Workshop thread, and it reminded me that I hadn't posted this one. I built it from the instructions and parts tracings available on Outerzone. Box top color scheme due to a total lack of imagination. Huh...

I've learned not to trust the integral tanked engines for aerobatics, so this one has a product engine with a 1/2 oz. Perfect tank. So far, powerful and reliable. Also, I changed the gear mounting method to the one Scientific used. It's simpler and more maintainable.

This design has a lot going for it. Dirt simple to build, and flies really well. Better than I expected from a sheet wing. The spindly aft fuse is a weak point. I haven't done a figure 9 yet, but when I do, it will break there.

Lack of imagination maybe, but certainly well executed! I like the box art and I think you captured it perfectly. I also really like how you mounted that tank.

Stunt Man 23 Empty Stuntman 23 musings

Post  706jim Fri Dec 11, 2020 12:11 pm

I recall that the wing in the kit was made up of four pieces probably to save cost and allow the kit box to be smaller. I can't see the seams in either of the photos here. Were these made with a one piece wing?

And I see what you mean about the spindly fuselage aft of the wing.

When I built mine at age 11 the instructions told you to cement nuts behind the firewall to hold the Fox 0.099 engine. The engine had an integral tank sealed with a cork gasket. Absolutely frustrating to a young kid trying to accomplish this with Ambroid glue! There was just no way that this setup would have allowed the tank to seal.

My father came to the rescue with a sheet metal mount that picked up sideways on the engine mounting cheeks.

Sadly there was no picture taken of this my "first" airplane.

I would love to build a second one from the original kit just for nostalgia purposes. As I mentioned earlier, I never had a successful flight with this creation and would love to see how it handles now that I actually have learned how to fly.

I was quite prepared to pay the inflated price for the Brodak replica kit when I visited Toledo a few years back, but by early sunday they had packed up most of their display.

Dua, awesome job on the scratch building. I too, like the box art. what did you use for the color scheme? If I may ask. I built a couple of these back in the late 50's, one flew with an OK Cub .049 A engine, and if I remember, a 6X3 prop. Not a lot of power there but hey! We didn't understand, more nitro, with smaller props and with braided wire flying lines. I even upped the anti, bought a new Fox .09 to mount on second Stunt Man thinking, more power as instructions said, up to an .09. IMO, worst Fox motor ever made. It wouldn't even come close to doing a wing over, and when out of fuel, quite the lawn dart on the way down. You have just given me hope to try the Stunt Man once again, will look for the plans. Eddy

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

Jim, mine has a 2 pc wing, only because it is too wide to cut from a standard width sheet. I did eliminate the center joint, though. Didn't have to fit into a box. Smile

Eddy, the covering is all monokote, including the lettering. And yes, you should give the Stunt Man another chance. Keep it light, it will fly well.

Duaneh,
That looks fabulous! Mine from 40 years ago was all red...I could.only afford one bottle of dope for two planes back then.

Can you provide more detail regarding your landing gear? You mentioned "the Scientific way," but that doesn't put a picture in my head.

Thanks

Jim, the Scientific hollow logs used a groove in the firewall to hold the gear, which was retained by the engine itself. I just cut 2 pieces of 1/16" ply and epoxied to the front of the firewall, so I didn't have to make a groove.
Here is a picture to explain it better than I can.

This makes so much sense. The landing gear are not installed until the model has been completed allowing easier access to the entire airframe for paining or covering. And when the gear inevitably get bent they can be easily straightened or replaced unlike gear buried in the structure.
